MTA Arts & Design Brings Whimsical Animated History of Subway Cars to Fulton Center

The Blowing Bowler is a cute animated video created by RedNoseStudio for the MTA Arts & Design department that features a man chasing after his hat as it blows past different decades of subway car designs.

After a gust of wind blows a man’s bowler hat away, he’s sent on a journey through a tunnel, where subway cars — from the 1870s, 1910s, 1940s, 1950s, 1970s and 2013 roll past. The loop of animation is about two minutes, but the process to create the stop-motion art took months to create.

The video is being shown on the 52 large LED screens at Fulton Center for 2 minutes at the top of every hour.
